Brilliant Disguises – How “The Americans” Creates Characters Within Characters

The fascinating tale of two Russian spies – “Elizabeth” and “Philip” – living in the United States as a regular American family in the last years of the Cold War, the FX series The Americans has received several accolades, including Golden Globe nominations for its stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys. While people may have wondered about Cold War themes in the new millennium, the talk of a possible Russian shadow in America’s last election and on-going questions and innuendo between the two countries, has made the show almost prescient – and hotter than ever.
